Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: furthur vs. the dead

I think Warren in particular is an outstanding interpreter of Jerry's music. He gets it and really pays his respects when he plays it, but never tries to copy Jerry's style.

On the flip side I think Kadlecik is a complete joke. Little side story:

I have never been a fan of cover/tribute bands and always thought the whole idea behind them was kind of silly. But I had heard good things about DSO so when I won tickets to see them I didn't hesitate to go. Went in with an open mind and everything. I was blown away by how bad they were. I left before the first set was even over. To this day still do not know what people see in them.

Cut to a little bit later I hear Phil & Bob have a new project, so without even knowing the line-up I give them a shot. Again I am blown away but not in a good way. What is this lifeless interpretation of Dead music I am suffering through? And who is this awful guitar player trying to copy Jerry but failing miserably? You can imagine my lack of shock to discover it's the guy from DSO.

I said it before and I will be REALLY happy if and when Furthur ends and we can go back to some quality and high energy Phil & Friends shows with interesting line-ups. But I'm not holding my breath.

I was at a party recently and when the topic of Furthur came up, one girl describe it as "geriatric Dead." Pretty accurate. I know Phil & Bob are up there in years, but they are really letting it be known through Furthur.

Just my opinion though.
